TUCKER, Ga. (June 30, 2016) – On July 11, the City of Tucker will implement a 90-day moratorium on all applications and permits related to the use of land within the City.
“This process is necessary for the City of Tucker to establish its local ordinances,” says Mayor Frank Auman. “We’re making every effort to keep the moratorium as short as possible to minimize any inconvenience.”
It is common practice for new cities to enact moratoriums for various reasons, and many metro Atlanta cities have done so. Going forward, the City of Tucker will take over the functions of planning and zoning, building permitting and code compliance from DeKalb County, which will improve the safety and welfare of residents.
City officials are looking forward to the economic development that is coming to the City of Tucker after the moratorium is lifted.
The 90-day period for the building moratorium will end no later than October 9, 2016.
